Takashi Miike is a staple name in the world of cutting edge lunacy in cinema. The man has delivered the goods time and time again, and now he's heading into Battle Royale territory for an adaptation of As God Says (Kamisama no lu Tori) for Toho.
According to Variety, Miike has been tapped to helm the film based on a popular comic about teenagers forced to play a deadly game by unknown forces. The flick will be produced by Toho, with principal photography set to start in June and the Japan release, also by Toho, scheduled for the fall of 2014.
Stay tuned for more on this one as it comes.
